Here are some other facts of SL bowling in this WC.
1- Conceded the least runs(along with India) in PP (4.66) and have picked max (along with WI)wkts(35.48%) in this phase.
2- Interestingly their 5th ball has gone for plenty in PP( 30/112 runs)= 26.80%. With max boundaries(35.30%)scored. It might be related to how they start the over, depriving batsman for runs which resulted in 7 wkts falling in 4th and 5th ball of an over…. 11wkts in POWER PLAY(7 in last 2 ball)!!.
